Lately, we have heard a lot of buzz circulating around the term “pride of place.” So what exactly is all the talk about? Pride of place encompasses the idea that at the table, there is a place for everything and with that notion, a place for everyone. With the upcoming holidays, pride of place is something everyone should have their mind set upon. If you are known for having all of the latest tools in entertaining, this is the blog for you. Grab your table setting essentials today, so you don’t have to worry about where guests are sitting at your table tomorrow.
To kick off a place setting, start with a charger. We recommend branching away from the traditional option and selecting a more robust piece. For a layout that demands a round charger, our Small Round Pine Pizza Board will do just the trick. For a bold statement, try our Rustic Footed Dessert Charger and pair it with a smaller plate or ramekin. The latter is great for tapas or dessert.
A place setting is not complete without flatware accompanying it. For silverware that is more than just useful, our Silver Plate 5 Piece Place Setting adds vintage flair to any table. Depending on how formal the dinner party or holiday gathering is, the five-piece set is sure to have everything you need to set the perfect table, give or take a few utensils.
For the silverware that doesn’t have its place at the table or that needs a resting spot on the dessert table, we recommend displaying it safely in our Bordeaux Silverware Caddy. It’s the perfect spot for any hostess that needs a break, so guests can serve themselves accordingly.
Lastly, hosts and hostesses can personalize their table by using our Galvanized Name Cards to let guests know where to sit once it is dinnertime. The versatile Reclaimed Wood Card Holder keeps the cards safely in place and can be used year-round. When the next dinner party rolls around, just wash off the chalk and use them all over again.
